Nvidia promises self-driving cars on the road by 2020

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang announced that self-driving cars will be on roads and highways within three years.

“Next year, we’ll see simulated environments and development systems,” Huang said. “Year after that, robot taxis. The year after that, self-driving cars.”

Nvidia has enormous expertise in self-driving cars since they produce “brains” for those: car supercomputers like the Nvidia Drive PX 2 Pegasus is a standard, which over 200 hardware companies and car makers are beginning to adopt.

Nvidia began diving into research on deep learning neural networks and artificial intelligence seven years ago. Result is a software platform called CUDA.
